The four weeks of Advent remind us to set aside some of the hectic business of the holiday season, and to quietly reflect on the promise of the baby born in Bethlehem 2000 years ago. As St Paul’s parish community, we let the Advent themes of waiting, preparation, light in the darkness, and the coming of the promised Messiah speak to our hearts and prayers at this special time.

In our Forgiveness Service in 2017 we came together to think about, “Who are we?”
Jesus, the Light of the World, lived on earth, fully human as we are, to guide us on our journey of life, showing us how to live. As Baptised members of God’s family how do we live out our faith following in the footsteps of Jesus? As we journey together how do we light up the way for others? Join us in our examination on conscience, prepared by Jacqui Feely. Click here ->
